Drink Seminar: South African

Drink Seminar: South African "New Wave" Chenin Blanc


Presenter: Kurtis Kolt 

Wine consultant Kurtis Kolt leads this guided tasting of fresh and innovative Chenin Blancs from South Africa.  Winemakers there recognized some time ago that the grape has the perfect ability to express the varied terroir of their country, and they've mastered the art of creating a wide array of Chenin Blanc styles.  From bone-dry crisp and citrusy versions, to luxurious wines that suggest honey-drenched pears on brioche, there's something for everyone.  South Africa even produces Chenins that have significant ageing potential -- for those who have the patience to leave them in the bottle!  Guests will taste a range of wines including incredible bargains alongside premium contenders.  New favourites guaranteed!
